Mediaite’s Noah Rothman joined the panel on Fox News Watch Saturday, leading off a discussion about Oprah Winfrey and race, in light of the media mogul’s recent remarks about Trayvon Martin and experiencing racism in Switzerland. Picking up on themes from a column he wrote earlier in the week, Rothman said there’s “precedent” for Winfrey tying claims racism to projects she’s promoting, with this week’s example being her high profile return to acting in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. “This is something of a precedent,” Rothman told host Jon Scott. “It just kind of comes right before she’s promoting a project,
Jase Robertson of Duck Dynasty was kicked out of a New York hotel in which he was staying after being profiled as homeless. Which was worse, his treatment or Oprah´s? He laughed, she bitched. The MSM bought hers, Americans loved his.
Okra may be super wealthy, but she isn´t happy or healthy. She is morbidly obese, ugly inside and still black on the outside. I truly believe black people do not like being black. They dislike themselves. And did I say she is also a racist?
Have you noticed that ever since BO became pres. every black, whether famous or not, is coming out of the woodwork screaming racism for any perceived slight.
I do not have any facts, but I suspect that discrimination law suits have also increased. And the media wonder why black unemployment is so high. Who would risk highering them with the possibility of be labeled a racist and getting sued.
No, I haven´t noticed that "every black" is screaming racism any more than I´ve noticed that "every white" is being racist.
Those who were what they were are still being what they were, and some who were not are allowing themselves to become one or the other of those things
What I´ve noticed, "since BO became pres.", is that there is a more concerted effort than ever to divide Americans and pit one group against another. It breaks my heart to see it working. I pray we open our eyes and fight against it before it destroys everything we have overcome throughout my lifetime.
"The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart." Luke 6:45
"Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
Satan uses all sorts of things to cause men to fall into his trap. Skin color is just one of them.
This story also ties in with this week´s Obama-rodeo-mask "outrage". Bottom Line: The burden of their race is only as onerous as they choose to make it. In these incidences, those two are leveraging race to further their own ends.
I doubt much of it is truly coordinated, but too many liberals in show business, politics and the media feel compelled to discuss "racism" and to allege racist acts where they don´t exist. The result, of course, is to imply ugly intent, thus further dividing all of us between those who are deemed tolerant (the ones who are doing the speaking) and those who are assumed to be red-necked ignoramuses (the rest of us).
Andrea Tantaros did a good job yesterday of explaining the difference between "prejudiced" and "racist". She said most of us are prejudiced in that we prejudge individuals for all kinds of reasons, very few of which are racist. The words aren´t interchangeable.
Read that the move is a ´big´ hit. Checked out the ratings on Drudge. It made $8 million opening night. That´s it. It´s not a big hit at all but I guess if enough people say it, maybe they can lure a few more dummies in to see it.
$25 million for an opening weekend is chump change. Go look at the ratings for any Harry Potter or any Twilight movie and you´ll see a "big hit" movie. By next weekend all of the race moaners will have seen it and the ratings will be abysmal.
Have whining movies plugs ever worked ? Does anybody want to hear racist innuendo from the formerly most successful woman in live TV ? Maybe she´s trying to take the heat off of the sentenced criminal, Jesse Jackson Jr. Maybe she´s trying to fill in, cover for, other very unpopular, disgraced, race baiters, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Barry Soetero. To continue their agitating communist baiting, they need her help. Imagine all of this contrived media attracting garbage over a %35,000 handbag. It didn´t even happen in America where the robot racism trick always works for our TV news actors. Imagine trying to create any kind of racism scene in Switzerland, a far off world we cannont contaminate ..... and phony racism over a stupid $35,000 handbag. Like Bill Maher, desperate enough to say anything for attention.
Oprah´s all about "Oprah". Her fawning audience for all those years made her feel omnipotent. She should know that everybody, ´worldwide´ is not going to bow down to her like most do here. She´s gotten way to big for her bloomers and now she´s got ´em in a wad.
Oprah, get over yourself, and stop sending my husband your magazine to which neither of us subscribed. The ubiquitous photos of you throughout the pages and ´always´ on the cover are very tiresome. Yes, we know you´ve got a lot of money, Oprah. Big deal.
I seriously doubt this movie is or will be a big hit. The reviews are lukewarm and the subject matter is not appealing to the young, movie-going audience. What we are seeing is the PR machine trying to pump it up. I predict it will be gone from theaters by the end of September.
´ was channel surfing the other day and she was on The View. It seemed like it was race day as that is all they discussed. Lenny Kravitz was even in on it. Race issues seems to be the whole essence of Oprah´s being. She talked non-stop about race, poor abused black people, how she bravely escaped racist Mississippi, promotes black people causes only. She enjoys dragging out the 60´s dirty laundry, the sit-ins at Woolworths. She said, "My mother was a maid, my grandmother was a maid and my great grand mother was a SLAVE". Ahhh, crying in her cheerios, gee I hope she gets over it. Remember she opened a girl´s school in Africa and banned white girls. What an example she sets-not.
Where the wide girth black woman, Oprah, blew the use of the race card was where she used it and under what circumstances. Over a 30 thousand plus dollar purse? Paleez! If it were a simple meal in a southern cafe in Georgia it would be different but in Switzerland over an expensive purse. Sorry ´the Oprah´ that doesn´t bring sympathy your way. A rich black woman on the search to be offended is no enjoyment to sit back and tolerate. I hope now half the people she offended stay away from her movie and it fails. I thought I would like to view it but not now or ever. Forrest Wittiker can thank ´the Oprah´ for this bad promotion of the movie. The nation is now sick of in your face blackism and Oprah Hollywood types.
My mother used to listen to Arthur Godfrey on the radio whenever his program was on. He was folksy, very popular and could make or break a performer´s career. Then he got full of himself, made self-important pronouncements on everything, and disappeared.
Seems like the brothers are ginning up the racial issues. Could it be they are worried about losing their black president in a few years? As for Okra (great take off on her name by one of the readers) she needs to keep marketing herself. Wasn´t she dissed a while ago by the Obamas? SHe wants back in the relevancy game.
The movie is #1 in box office take. It´s not "Star Wars", and not expected to be. Oprah´s mission, however, was accomplished. Her movie is getting mention, and her name was spelled correctly...even in these threads.

I will never forgive 0prah for giving us the 0bamessiah and for rejecting the real Messiah and replacing him with her Religion of Oprah.
I doubt most people on this forum have much of an idea how effectively and widely she spread her New Age religion particularly over the year when she had her great evangelistic drive.
She said that the statement that "GOD is a jealous GOD" just offended her, and she knew that there had to be another alternative. Now couldn´t she have hired someone to interpret that statement for her? Maybe she could have paid an obscene amount for a purveyor of truth? But she wants to be a GOD-dess.
The Press are the only sector of Business in America specifically mentioned in our Constitution and singled out for especial protections.
When they undermine the United States they are guilty of Treason by giving aid and comfort to enemies foreign and domestic>/i>.
The Press makes its bread and butter off scandal and kerfuffles, rather than hard hitting investigation. They have not only abdicated their Constitutional role, they have dipped the Constitution in the sewer. By reducing their role to nothing more than damaging rags.
Oprah is a good example to us that it can be a blessing NOT to win the lottery. The richest woman on earth is not satisfied. She is overweight, yet starving for attention, starving for pity, starving to be relevant. She has replaced the truth of God with a lie of her own convenience and shaping. Yet she is restless. Centuries ago, St. Augustine penned this prayer: "Thou hast made us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in Thee." Such examples go on and on, whether it be the mayor of NYC, or a Hollywood persona, or a politician who doesn´t know when to shut up and go home.
Well, you can add: "only in America" she became a gazillionaire, has huge audience, white people gobble the stuff she is ladling, which is racism, overall hatred of humans (disguised as compassion for some), misanthropy, etc... I repeat: there are 2 things in abundance in the Universe: hydrogen and human stupidity!
After decades of incredible wealth providing success, all she is left with is spouting leftover Jesse Jackson, Mean Al Sharpton, self defeating racist trash. And no whites allowed in her African schools
Why vote for Democrats unless for the ever present, constant, never ending, eternal threat of worldwide racism - a threat that is shattering the very lives of anyone brave enough to voice support for Barack Obama in the face of the ever present, constant, never ending, eternal threat of worldwide racism!
Everyone in the world, except bilthering idiots, knows exactly what´s going on when millionairs and billionaires who are black cry "Racism". If racism is so blatant, how did those people become such huge 1% successes? Not thorugh the dismally poor black community alone- that´s for sure. The did not get rich by merely "being black"- except for race hustlers like Jackson and Rangle, and though they have big loud mouths and make the largest portions of the race news media, they are so few as to be counted only with the fingers of one hand. It´s nothing but a sham, like selling tulip bulbs in Holland or Sashay Cosmetics in lower middle class neighborhoods. It´s a game based on fakery and phony self shame.
DH and I were watching Fox about Okra (LOVE THAT by the way) and they had some black lib on. He said that---and this is a paraphrase, but correct--even if you have black friends, have never said the N word, and never done anything racist, you were STILL RACIST. So if blacks are stopped while driving black, I am racist by breathing while white. These people don´t know history. The South began Jim Crow laws because blacks were shoved down their throats after the war. I fear for my lovely country that this war will have to be fought again.

Re #42´s comment on poster´s criticism of Oprah´s weight --
A photo of Oprah in Switzerland showed her and her companions inappropriately attired in too tight too thin knit clothing. We have had Oprah´s weight losses and inevitable weight gains paraded before us on television and countless magazine covers. I, for one, would be impressed if Oprah had the discipline to lose weight and take better care of her healh.
The Hollywood Reporter gathered some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry Wednesday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the 22nd annual Women in Entertainment breakfast to honor the Power 100 and present Oprah Winfrey with a leadership award named for former Paramount and 20th Century Fox exec Sherry Lansing. Lansing took the stage at the packed event, sponsored by Lifetime, Gucci, Samsung Galaxy, Audi, Roberto Coin, Guggenheim, City National Bank, the Gersh Agency, Loyola Marymount University and the Entertainment Industry Foundation, to speak about Winfrey, whom she called one of her personal idols. "You conduct your life in
President Barack Obama reportedly plans to nominate Stanley Fischer to be the next vice chairman of the Federal Reserve. The former Bank of Israel Chief would take over for Janet Yellen when she leaves the post to become Fed chairwoman. Fischer, a dual-citizen of the U.S. and Israel, served as the head of Israel’s central bank for eight-years before stepping down on June 30 of this year. Later this summer, the economist sung the Fed’s praises on the Charlie Rose Show. “The United States managed — although it is hard for Americans to believe — managed the crisis better than
Walking out of a private conference room beneath the Capitol Building on Tuesday, Republican House members looked tired. Not the typical "I-had-a-bad-night’s-sleep" tired but something deeper — a look of battle exhaustion. Unlike past meetings in the same place during periods of fever-pitched warfare with Democrats, it appeared — for the first time in a long time — the fire in their bellies that drove them to shut down the government and risk federal default, was, for now, no longer evident. These Republicans had just been briefed on a new, bipartisan budget blueprint that would establish long-term federal government spending
MIAMI- George Zimmerman will not face domestic violence charges because his girlfriend did not wish to pursue the case and there was scant evidence of a crime, a state prosecutor said Wednesday. Samantha Scheibe´s decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence would have made the case difficult to prove, State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement. "There is no reasonable likelihood of a successful prosecution," Archer said. Zimmerman, 30, had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 confrontation at the central Florida house he shared with
In a contentious exchange with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over her repeated claims that mandated health services do not raise costs for consumers in the form of higher insurance premiums, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) waved his hand in apparent surrender and said to her, “It’s like talking to the Republic of Korea or something.” Shimkus apparently was referring to North Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the Communist rulers there spout pro-government propaganda that is then glowingly reported by state-run media.(Video)
"The journalistic bond between The Post and MSNBC just grew a bit stronger, as the paper’s opinion section announced that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will be writing a monthly column." So began Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple´s announcement Wednesday concerning the addition of the perilously liberal Maddow to the Post opinion page.Honestly, if you were the Post, would you want your relationship with the so-called "news network" considered by most to be the biggest farce in journalism to grow stronger? After the high profile dismissal of Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir, is this really the time to be adding
Christmas miracle or sickly sweet PR stunt? Either way, it´s unlikely these WestJet passengers care after they had their wildest holiday wishes granted during a flight across Canada. Travelers pitching up at Toronto Pearson and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airports for flights to Calgary were surprised when a virtual Santa Claus asked what they wanted for Christmas. A promo video sees a variety of passengers telling Father Christmas their dream gift.With their wishes made, the footage shows them merrily taking their place on the aircrafts.
Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, is under investigation for child pornography. The Republican Senator from Tennessee revealed Wednesday that law enforcement officers are searching Loskarn´s private residence. “I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned,” the Senator said. Alexander, 73, made the announcement on Wednesday, indicating he "was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel’s office" of the search. The staffer has been placed on administrative leave without pay.
RENO, Nevada- A couple and four young children missing in frigid weather since they went on an outing to play in the snow on Sunday were found alive in a remote mountain range in Nevada on Tuesday huddled in their overturned vehicle, a sheriff´s dispatch supervisor said. The couple had taken their two children and the woman´s niece and nephew, who range in age from 3 to 10, to an abandoned mining camp in the Seven Troughs range of northwestern Nevada, Pershing County dispatch supervisor Sheila Reitz said. The six were found in good condition and were treated for exposure
The troubled son of a church pastor who is a spiritual advisor to Barack Obama has died in an apparent suicide. Father-of-three Isaac Hunter, 36, had been battling problems since resigning from a Florida megachurch he founded after admitting to an affair with a staff member last year. A judge also granted his wife a domestic-violence petition after claiming his erratic behavior and alcohol abuse had left her ´fearing for my life and the lives of our three children.´ According to court documents, Hunter had written an undated suicide note saying: ´I have become what I never wished to be,
A federal judge said General Motors Co is not required to pay $450 million to cover medical benefits for retirees, in a defeat for the United Auto Workers union. In a 36-page decision, U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn in Detroit said on Tuesday that the current GM did not assume any obligation for the payment, which the automaker had contracted to make two years before its June 2009 bankruptcy filing. The payment had been part of a June 2007 contract between the old GM, its former Delphi Corp affiliate and the UAW. It was not, however, included in a different
MOSCOW— A Russian Cabinet member says Moscow has reserved the right to use nuclear weapons in response to a conventional strike. Wednesday´s comments by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin carried by Russian news agencies reflected Moscow´s concern with prospective U.S. weapons. Weapons that have been developed in the U.S. under the so-called "prompt global strike" program would be capable of striking targets anywhere in the world in as little as an hour with deadly precision. Russia, which has lagged far behind in developing such weapons, has described them as destabilizing. Without naming the U.S., Rogozin said that those who "experiment
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
